Treasure Hunts are going to be the best way you all can earn money and it's possible to earn a lot the more members get involved.

Treasure Hunts will be $5 for a map

Here's how they work:

Whenever a member signs up for an individual treasure hunt half his purchase gets put into a prize pool. The greater amount in the prize pool, the more places it pays to. For example if 100 members purchase Treasure Hunt #27 and the map costs $5, then the prize pool is half the total amount. This would mean that there's $250 in the prize pool to be found. The other half helps pay out more money at the end of the month and buy prizes.

So let's use a $250 prize pool as our example. The payout could be like this:
1st - $125
2nd - $75
3rd - $30
4th - $20

or
1st - $100
2nd- $50
3rd - $30
4th - $25
5th - $20
6th - $15
7th - $10


Now let's say we get a lot of members and we have 1000 members each purchase the $5 map. That's a prize pool of $2500...you can all do the math for that one. We would probably pay to the top 50 people or something with that much.

This money earned is directly deposited into your paypal or stormpay accounts. If you'd like we can even send a check or money order.


****ANNOUNCEMENT****
The very first treasure hunt is going to be free and have a prize pool of $100. First place will receive $50, second $30 and 3rd will receive $20. This is our way of saying thanks to you all.

you could also create tresure hunts that Dont require cash buyins. Instead the first 30 or so members to find the secret location will get gold or a package of extra moves instead

Treasure hunts are almost completed, they are very complex and use a very good AI. Treasure hunts will be available throughout the day and you'll have plenty of advanced time to purchase a map and play so you don't miss one based on your time zone. We will try and provide as many as we can. Some of them could not be races, but will involve other critcal thinking.

Be cool if we could get in a treasure hunt or by paying by paypal, stormpay ect. Just another option for the users, by buying lets say 5000 or 10000 gold per hunt. Instead of money this could make gold worth more too! 8)

You'll be able to buy into the treasure hunt by paypal, stormpay, credit card, or if you send us a money order we can credit your account. Treasure hunts will make the gold worth more because money goes back into the game.

to bad we couldn't get rupurt off of surviver to promote the game for us , that would top it all off. I truly think this game is going to get bigger then all the rest and i'm going too do my best to get as many people invoved as i can so we can rape and pilage them landlubbers.wish WW hadn't deleted all my email's ,I would have started with every one else and been almost done upgrading. OH i was wondering how far can we upgrade besides the radar at 10 and the ships at 10 what is the limit on the upgrades or is there any at all.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE
I'M COMING FOR YOU

There is no limit on upgrades aside from radar and ship.

sweet! The first one's gonna be free! I second the idea of using gold stead of money.

I don't have anything in my paypal and don't have a credit card :?

too true for many PTW members. it doesn't seem all that fair to charge real world money when the site is open to people 13 years+ and i don't know any under 18's with a credit card.

Perhaps we could have both? After all, one reason to have the hunts is to beef up the worth of our gold for the end of the month. That can only be done by putting cold hard cash into the game, not gold that you have earned. How about cash ones to help out the group (as well as the winners!) and those that can be paid for with your gold earnings, and prizes in those would be more gold, upgrades, etc. Seems like that would solve all the problems and everyone could get in on the action.
